Fear and Trust


I’ve been thinking about the downgrade in the US debt rating, and wondering what sort of impact it is going to have. I imagine that much of it’s actual impact will come from fear.

I realize that even I can pick up some of that fear and be effected by it. I can worry about how it will effect my job stability and job prospects.

But what I really need to do is trust in the Lord. Jesus isn’t effected by the Federal government, or by some investment rating company’s opinion of the Federal government. The Lord promises to meet my needs. If I will trust in that, or go to God until I trust in that, then all that I fear becomes irrelevant. As long as I am not coveting things beyond my needs, I need not have fear. The Lord has promised to meet all my needs.
